Postville Herald (Newspaper) - August 9, 1918, Postville, Iowa The Postville Herald to Stville How farm folks help in the War Little stories from real life illustrating How they Back up Uncle Sam. Liberty Bonds teach Thrift encourage saving habit in those who never saved before great crisis demands the Best from All of us. By Herbert Myrick. President of the National farm Power group of agricultural papers. Pirt you Road that item in the newspapers the other Day. Of a one time distinguished and prosperous citizen of Chicago who died suddenly in the Hospital unknown alone unloved he was an old Man a victim of adversity forgotten by the acquaintances of his Prosperity. The authorities were about to consign the body to the potters Field when they found in his pocket a Liberty Bond for $50 and a certificate of a fraternal Lodge to which he had once belonged. That society was notified and gave him a Christian burial the undertaker and cemetery accepting the Bond in payment for coffin and lot. Jamie we Salute you a Good True is Jamie Bliss age five years who lives with Mamma and papa on a farm near eau Claire wis. Jamie had heard All the discussion about Liberty Bonds and Thrift Stamps and not yet being established in business for himself was puzzled a Little to know How such a Little boy could have a part in this great undertaking. At the same time he Learned How sorely our fighting men need Wool and the great idea came to him. Without consulting anyone Jamie started about the farm harvesting from Hedges and wire fences the Little wisps of Wool left there As his father s sheep pastured. As a result of his expedition Jamie came into the House with his. Pockets and inside of his Waist bulging with Wool. Mamma Buss was somewhat astonished when he explained that he was gathering Wool to sell so he could buy Thrift Stamps Bat being a Wise Mother she saw the Point quickly. Since then honorable Jamie Wool gatherer to Uncle Sam makes Dally exp Cursons into the sheep pasture. Already his Wool has purchased two $5 War savings Stamps and a Good Start toward another one. This folks is something which was not taught out of a Book but it is a say Nile of the patriotic citizenship now growing up. Ready to stand at the Helm a few decades hence. Becoming a Bondholder. Among my friends for years is a hard working Farmer with wife and several children. He never seemed to quite get though he worked hard he just lacked the Knack of getting a bit ahead. During the past year he deemed to have prospered. When. I saw him last week he said it s this Way t subscribed 550 for a Liberty Bond last year and simply had to pay for it. 1 did so by paying in every Dollar i could spare instead of spending Money for things we could just As Well do without. It is curious How one accumulates if they go at it that Way. I see now that one reason Why i never saved any Money was because i did t have anything like this to take my Cash a Little at a time. I used to think that i would begin saving when i had my Bills paid and $25 to the Good but i hive discovered at this late Date that the Way to do it is to save a Little at a time and put it by As you get it. I have been surprised to find that the same is True of so Many other Farmers especially renters. What they have put into the Liberty Bond is Money that would have slipped through their fingers. They would have nothing to show for it whereas now they have got a Bond earning Good interest while their Money is helping to lick the Kaiser. My first Bond is now paid in full and i am beginning to save up my subscription to the fourth Liberty this reminds me of still another Case where the boys and girls have a earned and saved along with their parents until their subscription for. Each of the three Liberty Loans Are now paid up. They did not see How they could raise the Money for their first subscription but their second Ivas double that and the third was still larger. The oldest boy was taken by the draft which made the family All the More determined. The Mother is saving her egg Money each of the children has a bit of a Garden from which they Are Selling stuff one of the girls is n member of the pig club and the oldest boy still at Home has Quarter of an acre of onions that promises a splendid crop. The father is harvesting a heavy crop of Liberty Bond in fire mixed with newspapers it was used for kindling. Mrs. Charles Stoeckel of Georgetown del., found it rather Cool and Damp one Day recently and decided to kindle a Little Wood fire in one of her stoves. She used. An old newspaper or two picked up from the Center table to Start the Wood. Among the papers was a $50 Liberty Bond which r husband had Juat purchased at the wheat and last Spring made up his mind to devote not less than one third of the proceeds to the War. This one family is planning to subscribe $1,000 for the fourth Liberty loan and if All goes Well will be Able to pay Down nearly half the amount a horde of huns at your door. You know what they would do to you and your women a Fate far worse than death. Tou know How huns have Laid Bare the Countryside they have conquered no animal or Plant allowed to survive even Trees and vines Cut off close to the ground. Rural Homes demolished barns burned. You know How the bodies enslave the Farmers of Belgium. Volant., the Ukraine. Words cannot depict the horror of it. To prevent the same thing happening right Here to you and your family to your own Community state and nation that is what our boys Are fighting for Over it is a question of right Over might 1 shall Liberty be destroyed by slavery this is the question the War is to answer for Yon and me and for generations yet unborn. This final struggle for the survival of the fittest among humans demands every ounce of our Energy every Cut of our Money. Noble men and women Are patriotically devoting some or All of their time without Money and without Price to help Uncle Sam win a Victory. Others Are giving produce or Money to the Good cause. Millions of our Healthiest Young men the very seed of the race Are sacrificing their lives that you and i and others May live in peace. The very least that each of us can do now is to lend our Money to Uncle Sam so that he will have the funds with which to fight. The War is costing billions. The Only Way the government can get the Money is to borrow it from the people or tax it out of them. The More the Public lends to the government the less taxes it will have to pay. You can help in this crisis by subscribing to the fourth Liberty loan. These government hands Are the safest investment on Earth. They Are absolutely Good. They yield Good interest. You can get your interest Money twice a year. If you have to use your principal you can sell your Bond any minute or you can use it As Security at the Bank to borrow for temporary wants. The latter is the better Way because it does t help the government any for you to sell your Bond or for somebody else to buy your Bond. Get your Bond direct from the government then your Money goes direct to the government and will be used by it to pay the wages of soldiers and sailors and to furnish the ships and munitions with which hey shall win the Victory. Must do our Best. It is up to each of us to do not our bit but our Best. It s a question of life or death. Simplify economize go without things so that the Effort time thought and Money thus saved May be transmuted into the things that shall enable the american Flag to Fly Over Berlin a Symbol of the new civilization which is to insure peace through Victory in our Rural Homes on our farms in the trenches in other branches of service in subscriptions to the Liberty Bonds and War Stamps our american Farmers have repeatedly gone Over the top. Their efforts their patriotism their loyalty have been universally recognized. Now in this fourth Liberty loan our Rural folks will show the same generous Confidence in the eternal principles of human Liberty and of self government that were championed by those Middlesex Farmers their flags to april Breeze unfurled. Who fired the shot heard round the goes wooing a an Airship Maiden s neighbors in London suburb have fears for their roofs. pretty bit of chivalry was seen in a London suburb the other Day. Early in the morning the Knight errant was out on his air plane and was flying Low so Low As to make the tenants of the Terrace anxious about their roofs. On the miniature Lawn in the Center of the 30-foot Garden the Maiden waited until there fluttered Down through the morning Mist a Little Streamer of White material. It missed the Garden and into the Roadway. The Maiden rushed out and picked up her love letter. The neighbors curtains resumed their stillness and the Little episode of these grim Days was closed.

Too Many colors should never be used in any dish our or tests Tell us and surely we would not mix colors even in a salad which were not agreeable to each other.

Currants and raspberries in equal quantities make a delicious Jelly. Jelly to be Clear should drip through a Jelly bag Ami never be squeezed.
